Private safety offices in Ifugao train on occupational safety
by Daniel B. Codamon / PIA

LAGAWE, Ifugao – The Department of Labor and Employment conducted a two-day training course on basic occupational safety and health for safety officers for private establishments in the province.

DOLE-Ifugao Provincial Director Samuel Lasdacan said this is in compliance with Republic Act 11058 or the law that strengthens compliance with occupational safety and health standards. The law covers all establishments, projects, sites including those located at special economic zones and all other places where work is being undertaken in all branches of economic activity except in the public sector.

Lasdacan urged all private establishments and employers of Ifugao to maintain a safety officer for the benefit and protection of workers as well as to ensure a safe workplace.

A safety officer oversees the overall management of a company’s safety and health program, monitors and inspects health or safety aspects of a company’s operations, assists government inspectors in the conduct of safety and health inspection at any time whenever work is being performed or during the conduct of an accident investigation, and issue work stoppage orders when necessary.

The number and qualification of safety officers shall be proportionate to the total number of workers and equipment, the size of the work area and such other criteria as may be prescribed by the DOLE.

In the case of a contractor or subcontractor, a safety officer must be deployed at each specific area of operation to oversee the management of the safety and health program of its workforce.

The employer, project owner, general contractor, contractor or subcontractor and any person who manages, controls or supervises the work being undertaken shall be jointly and solidarily liable for failing to comply with the law.

Penalty is an administrative fine not exceeding P100,000 per day until the violation is corrected counted from the date the employer or contractor is notified of the violation or the date the compliance order is duly served on the employer.

Trainees who completed the course will soon be designated as Safety Officers 1 who will be tasked to implement an occupational safety and health program and ensure that it is in accordance with the provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Standards.
